Electrolysis Hair Removal

Electrolysis Hair Removal

What is the solution for hairs that don’t respond to laser and IPL?

The hair colour that protrudes from the skin, the hair you visibly see, is not relevant. The colour of the hair beneath is skin is relevant for IPL and laser treatments. TIP: If the hair colour beneath the skin lacks pigment, the laser or IPL light energy shoots right past the hair and the client will not see improvements. Here Electrolysis will be their solution for permanent hair removal on any area of the skin and body.

What is Electrolysis?

Some would question, does electrolysis really work, is electrolysis still available, where is electrolysis available and did it not become obsolete with the onset of IPL and laser? Electrolysis will never become obsolete. It is the only hair removal system that will remove any hair permanently, despite the hairs colour, as long as the practitioner performing the treatment is inserting the needle into the hair follicle where the bulb is. This is a highly skilled treatment. Yes, therapists performing electrolysis are few and far between.

How does Electrolysis work?               

Electrolysis is a permanent hair removal treatment using either the older galvanic direct current or blend method or more recently radio frequency or radio and high frequency current (LAMPROBE Electrolysis). A specific needle is inserted down the hair follicle. The insertion should not be felt as there are no nerves within the hair follicle. Heat is then delivered to the root or dermal papilla to destroy its growth and further growth.

Does Electrolysis work on grey and blonde hair?

Electrolysis is not colour or melanin dependant so Electrolysis can be performed on all colours of hair even red hair that IPL and laser can’t be effective on.

Does Electrolysis work on thick, stubborn hair?

Yes, some hairs require more current as they have really large roots due to varying factors like hormonal influences, age and even ethnicity.
